3 more years until you are an empty nester. That can mean a couple of things. FREEDOM. You already have plans to turn her bedroom into a hobby/gaming lounge. You and your wife are already shopping for new furniture or… midlife crisis time of ‘oh christ I’m old enough to have a kid in college’. Then you go out and get a sports car to try to make yourself feel young.

Still amazed at those transformations from girl to young woman. Was talking to friends who have a daughter in the same grade, it was nice to hear mom and daughter read the same stuff, too.

@aj sheperd: school is managed locally. Different locations start at different time. Northeast generally starts early september (right after labor day). midwest starts earlier. More in line with college start times.

I yesterday viewed old pictures of Athena when I looked up the Schadenfreude-Pie for obvious reasons. She has grown up mightily. *Keanu Reeves* Whoa *Keanu Reeves*. She’ll be 16 this year, won’t she?

10th grade :)

She’s old enough to drive that Mini, with 6-10 of her closest friends packed in, for late night/early morning/all weekend road trips.
